Darren Clarke looks like he has slimmed down (if that's him I'm seeing in the white visor on the range).

LOL.  It would also work (at least at Torrey and Pebble, and I think here too) if the game included "poa annua."

I think the announcers "Think" it makes them sound smart, or something. It is annoying. Oh...and Go D.J.

These anti-Obama posters were seen all around the Riviera Country Club yesterday. I'm guessing they have been removed by now, given the politics of that neighbor.

Thanks for posting Brian Stuard's golf swing. It looks a bit Dufner-esque without the waggle and with a longer backswing. And maybe he's closed at the top instead of square like Dufner? He seems to be another Hogan disciple with that Hogan Stance (left foot really flared out and right foot back and square-- for the driver swing). The finish looks identical to Duffs. I've been watching this guy (Brian Stuard) who seemingly came from out of nowhere  (obscure Oakland University in Michigan and then a brief stint on the web.com tour)  to come in with 4 top 10's in 2013, nearly shoot a 59 (he shot a 62 at the Humana) and already has 3 top 10's in 2014 and a 69 stroke average,  1.2 million dollars and has missed only 2 cuts out of 9 starts.  His name keeps jumping out at me from the leaderboards. 

 

I remember back (in 2006 and 2007?) seeing this obscure guy named Lucas Glover  who kept breaking into the top 10 every week and eventually won the US Open in 09, of course, having bested Duval and Barnes. So I'm predicting good things for Brian Stuard as well.  Thanks again for letting me look at this swing and another great example of maintaining that spine angle for most of the swing---except for the finish of course, when the body must eventually give in to gravity and the head must come up with the body and spine straightening. Flexibility---that which separates the amateur from the world class professional--- allowing him to create perfectly repeating swings and tremendous clubhead speed in excess of 110 mph.

Damn,Ricky Fowler missed the cut with a 76 (yikes)...wanted to watch the new swing...not so much now.

Man there are a lot of boring, C-class players on this leaderboard. Kinda disappointing.

Meh, Bubba Watson, Spieth, Walker, Schwartzel, and Dustin Johnson all have a decent chance to win today. Anything can happen especially with a leader that has NEVER won an event before.

BUBBA tied for the LEAD!

post #52 of 57

Leading.  Worse case of rabbit ears since Colin Montgomery.  Thought he liked loud cheering - at least he did in the Pres Cup/Ryder Cup. Bubba - one of my least fav golfers - ugly ass swing.

two putt for the win....then bring on the water works
post #54 of 57

He is a pretty emotional guy. I don't like how aggravated he has been getting with the gallery though. All in all, I think him winning is good for the game.
